Chetana USA


Chetana USA would like to build a partnership with Chetana, Orissa, India, so that both can make a significant impact to Mentally Challenged Kids in Orissa. Currently the institute has 170 Children in three Special Schools run by the organization. The institute also has 1204 Children with Intellectual Disability registered under the Community Based Rehabilitation Program run in 8 Community Development Blocks in 5 Districts of the State of Orissa, India. Most of the children admitted in Special Schools and almost all the children under the Community Based Rehabilitation Program belong to the Below Poverty Line (BPL) Category of income level having Family income of Rupees 11000/- or less per Annum ($ 270). Government of Orissa grants Rupees 500/- ($12) per month towards maintenance cost of each child. This amount is less than half of the actual maintenance cost of the child. A minimum amount of Rupees 1100/- ($27) per month is necessary for each child (also please see Support a Child Scheme). Funds are also needed to provide for the basic facilities at the Institute.
